Q2 ION

The new generation of Bruker Elemental’s spark spectrometer Q2 ION elevates metal analysis into new levels of simplicity and ease-of-use.

Today Q2 ION is the smallest and lightest ultra-compact spark emission spectrometer for metals analysis available. It is a versatile multi-matrix system for comprehensive material inspection and quality assurance of metal alloys. Its primary applications and metal matrices include copper, aluminum and iron at smaller foundries, inspection companies, metal recycling and metal fabricators. An affordable price and low operational costs make this spectrometer the ideal tool for smaller and medium-size businesses.

Besides the classical “analysis workflow”, the Q2 ION now also offers a dedicated forkflow for Positive Material Identification (PMI), especially useful for incoming material testing and quality control of metal alloys.
